I was able to make a few cards for DTGD at SCS, but have a few more started that I could not get back to.  I will finish them though as soon as I can get up into my art room!

 I made this background on glossy white cardstock and used a digi for the panda's.

 For this background, I played with acrylic paints. The giraffe's seemed an appropriate fit- this is a stamp from Technique Junkies.

 I got out the Distress Oxides for this one- they blend on the cardstock so smoothly!  I used a Cheery Lynn die as a stencil for the honeycomb shapes in the background. I could not resist adding a touch of Copic marker over the Oxide ink for a touch more depth of color in the flowers.

 And, this card started with the DP, and I found this little set of Hero Arts stamps I have never opened. I added a spider web over the DP .

Ahhh, it was so nice to get in the craft room!  My husband kept inviting me over and over to bike ride or go for a walk...not today honey : )

Thanks for stopping by!

Wow, lots of cards made. They are all so awesome. The giraffes is a favourite of mine. My son would love your panda card because he is so in love with them. I bought several panda stamps along the way just to use for him.

Wow! You really went to town in your craft room. These are all so very lovely. I think I like #3 the best. I like the bright yellow color and the pretty flowers. Thanks for sharing your lovely work. Hugs, Maggie
